Congress MPs, led by party chief Rahul Gandhi, today staged a protest in front of Mahatma Gandhi's statue inside Parliament premises.
Rahul said the BJP's lying factory was at work again, stymieing a media story on Cambridge Analytica allegedly being paid to sabotage the Congress by spinning fake news.
The BJP accused Rahul Gandhi of doing politics on dead bodies, after the Congress chief criticised the government over the killing of 39 Indians in Iraq.
BJP claimed that the firm was involved in Rahul Gandhi's social media campaign and there had been meetings too in this regard.
Launching a stinging attack against the govt, Rahul said it invented a story on data theft by the Congress to divert attention from the death of 39 Indians in Iraq.
B S Yeddyurappa said the state government's move to grant religious minority status to the Veerashaiva-Lingayat community was an "election gimmick".
India warned social media platforms like Facebook of 'strong action' if any attempt was made by them to influence the country electoral process through undesirable means.
Nitish Kumar asserted that his government was committed to preserving communal harmony in the state and would act firmly against those who tried to create mischief.
Narendra Modi is "insulting" the common man by claiming credit for India's progress, Rahul Gandhi, as he embarked on this third visit of poll-bound Karnataka.
"My deepest condolences to the families of those who have lived in hope, that their loved ones will return unharmed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you today."
